Are you ready to get turned on?
Northwestern University’s Sex Week is back this week! Sex Week is an annual week-long event promoting sex-positivity through workshops, guest speakers, panelists and fun events and games. Northwestern is only one of the universities hosting this fun annual event. What was started by Yale students in 2002 is now being hosted throughout the nation in universities such as Harvard, Brown, Emory and the University of Chicago.
